Brazil News and Views: The Brazilian Air Force Hosts “Southern Cross Exercise” (CRUZEX)

This week marked the beginning of CRUZEX, an international military exercise hosted by the Brazilian Air Force.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Translation: CRUZEX happens from the 18th to the 30th of November…in Natal, and brings together 13 countries, including Brazil….

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Other nations tweeted their participation:

USA

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Canada

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Chile

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Peru

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Uruguay

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

At one point, the Brazilian Air Force tweeted out a map (since deleted) which caused some consternation in Scandinavia.

 

 

 

 

 

 

The correction was made, and the resulting map gives a good idea of the international scope of the exercise.

 

 

 

 

Pictures and video from the event have been spectacular.
